It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. There are so many resources out there for reluctant readers … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Recommendations for Adults Who Don’t Like Reading
It's November! And for those of you attempting NaNoWriMo, I wish you the best of luck! I have no idea if I'm going to participate this year, since Book 3 seemingly refuses to come out of my brain and I hate myself and every procrastinating decision I have made in the past eight months to … Continue reading November 2021 TBR
Has spooky season ended? Hell no! However, it does look like I'm transitioning from a semi-themed spooktober (my first time theming a month around ~spooky~ books) and heading straight into epic fantasy (my November TBR posts tomorrow). This was a decent month, although I wrote very, very little, did absolutely no prep for NaNoWriMo, and … Continue reading October 2021 Wrap Up

But not without reading some novellas, because I had several ARCs and a couple from the library that I wanted to read before … Continue reading Novella Time! 5 Mini Reviews

Activation Degradation by Marina Lostetter 🌺🌺🌺🌺/5 "A body is a body," Aimsley said, echoing Doc, perhaps truly understanding what they'd meant for the first time. "It's the person that matters." From the minute Unit 4 is activated, something isn't right. Its helper is panicking, something is attacking the station (which supplies most of Earth's energy … Continue reading Book Review: Activation Degradation
Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is my absolute privilege and pleasure to say that it is now hosted by Meeghan reads!! I wasn't really feeling the Top 10 prompt this week (bookish settings...I feel like I did something similar), and Meegah's prompt for this week was really speaking to … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Books That Scared Me
